Ludivine Cazares, wife of the Bremerhaven conductor held for seven months by a brutal Mexican drugs gang, has spoken for the first time of the ordeal of his abduction, which happened while they were visiting Rodolfo’s parents in Matomoros, a town near the US Border.
‘My mother was forced to lie down in the boot of a car,’ Ludivine told Bild magazine. ‘As she tried to stretch, she touched corpses in plastic bags.’ Held captive in a suburban house, ‘the windows were blacked out, we were finally allowed to remove blindfolds. Our guard played demonstratively with their cartridge belts. I was scared to death.’
